About Daniel McDonald, PhD
My background is computational, and I emphasize open source software development and open access data. I lead Greengenes, BIOM-Format, redbiom, and in recent years UniFrac. I am the Scientific Director for the American Gut Project / Microsetta Initiative, and am a major contributor to projects like QIIME, Qiita and the Earth Microbiome Project. Within QIIME 2, I am a regular contributor on the forum and can be reached easily there under user @wasade. On GitHub, I can also be found under @wasade.
